Soul crooner Simon Burke and his band The Meltdown are back and proud to present single and video “Colours In The Sky“, in anticipation of their self-titled debut album, coming in April 2017.
From a band known for bumping, horn heavy dancefloor cuts, “Colours In The Sky” marks a change in direction – a majestic piece of downtempo country soul evoking big skies and long roads. The ballad feel finds Simon Burke’s honeyed voice at it’s most sensitive. Shades of Otis and Sam Cooke on a twangy southern tip..
“Colours In The Sky” could be slow dance music, or road trip music or any kind of soundtrack music, but what it is first and foremost is songwriting at it’s best. Songwriting supported by understated but expert musicianship and production and delivered with that voice. That voice!
